A Holiday Message from the Executive Director

Jen Metivier, fASPR

This will be the last ASPR Weekly of 2012. Since the first issue in 2011, ASPR Weekly has been keeping you apprised of important ASPR news and events. I hope that you’ve found it to be informative and that you’ll continue to read it regularly throughout 2013.

As the year comes to a close, I would like to say thank you to our volunteer Board of Directors and Committee Chairs for their time and dedication they give to ASPR as leaders of our organization. Their efforts and guidance are what make ASPR the wonderful educational and networking resource that it is. I would also like to thank our many volunteer committee members who dedicate their time, opinions, ideas, and expertise on the many projects and initiatives of our organization. And last, but certainly not least, I’d like to thank all of our members for making the decision to become and remain a member of ASPR.

I wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday season!



Jennifer Metivier, MS, FASPR
Executive Director
